The Ultimate Sin

It appears to be a slow news day here in the land of looney twoneys and maple syrup. Of course, it's a holiday weekend, and a Sunday morning, so maybe I simply need to wait for "stupid" to wake up and say things as will inevitably happen... I'm done parroting on about Edward Snowden and Michael Hastings, the NSA, and the police state for the moment and have zero unread items in my news feeds right now, which suggests I might actually have nothing to talk about. Except that it's been brought to my attention that I haven't mentioned certain things in a very long while. I might have eluded to them, or put up links to them, and I've even done some funky math to illustrate them, but not openly said them...

Yes, it's time to talk about the ultimate sin: usurious fractional reserve banking

the double-blind-folded taste-test of powdered shit

I think this article says a lot about the state of the free press in this 'age of information'. Truth be told, there's little truth being told at any of the upper echelons of any hierarchy, and I may not be here tomorrow to speak about it. I'll figure that out if it happens and have downloaded the requisite files in case it does happen (funny how Google reader, and Google blogger are going to vanquish 2 large information services in 2 days... And, no, not 'ha ha' funny). But while I figure that out (I could be blowing this blogger thing out of proportion, because it's a service I use) people like this will have some level of carte-blanche to continue whatever it is they get up to when they think nobody is watching, which, I might add, is never again.

monkey-wrenches in the machine don't work

The following is an email I received on October 19th 2012 regarding signing a petition:

OpenMedia
Good news! Because of you, Big Telecom was stopped in its tracks yesterday.
The CRTC (Canada’s media/telecom authority) just blocked Bell’s takeover of Astral Media. If it hadn’t been for you speaking out, Bell and other big telecom giants would have had more power to price-gouge Canadians and restrict access to the open Internet.
We’re now taking steps to fix Canada’s broken telecom market and it’s thanks to all of you who have spoken out, donated, or joined our allies program. Give yourselves a pat on the back.
Simply put: THANK YOU
Let’s keep going,
Steve, Shea, Lindsey, and Reilly—your OpenMedia team
P.S. Seriously, our community of supporters constantly inspires us. Thanks.

I remember it well, because I posted 'sometimes the system works' to Facebook.

It's too bad it doesn't actually work, otherwise, what the hell is this? "CRTC approves Bell-Astral merger". Sure it says 'merger', but this one doesn't: "CRTC approves Bell's $3.4B acquisition of Astral Media" (CTV is owned by Bell). So, all I got out of this signing a petition was to be a brief monkey-wrench in the systems gears, followed by a bunch of unsolicited email from open media. Some prize...

bacon grease jello wrestling

I guess this was bound to happen sooner or later... Masked men arrested in NDG bank. Given that the bank would have been closed @ 10:00 PM, some sort of explanation about the masks and why they were wearing them might be helpful. I don't think the wearing masks law applies when there is no 'protest' going on, especially since they were arrested for having drugs on them which would not have been known had nobody called the police on them for wearing masks.

It's a sad state of affairs when, for all we know, two people who were going to a costume party but needed to withdraw cash on the way, get ratted out and busted. I won't deny that it's possible that they were up to no good, but, this story and it's wording leads me to draw my own conclusions given it's lack of any substance, so the bottom line in my conclusions is they were arrested simply for wearing masks, and wondering if they would have even been arrested were they not carrying drugs.

...all the warmth of a chain-mail duvet cover filled with ice shards

I once read that if you cut a worm in two, it becomes two worms. While I never truly understood how that's even possible I am sometimes shown real world examples of snakes growing a new head to remind me of how it might work. Even if this example does not make two snakes, it at least shows how the side of the worm without a brain manages to grow a new one. I suppose the other half, without an anus, doesn't matter as much and it gets a short respite from having the shit scared out of it like some other spineless cowards out there.

I spy, with my little eye, something with the colour of 'stupid'

Politics has become nothing, if not predictable. I suppose I have a certain wisdom due to my local surroundings which explains why I am so unsurprised to find out that the dead horse mantra is not dead. I've lived my entire life in a politically charged atmosphere, overflowing with corruption, that has flogged a separatist agenda for most of my life (if not before), and actually has a 'language police'. From my perspective it actually looks like someone let the stupid out of a bottle stamped with "consignee 5¢ refund Quebec", and it spilled into the rest of the world. I know that this isn't true as I have studied history enough to realize that stupid likely came forth from somebody rubbing a genie lamp at some time before the Egyptian pyramids were built, but obviously this study was after I'd already observed a whole bushel of stupid in my own surroundings. (OK, maybe this stupid is recent... But it sure was stupid)

the fear of fear itself

Whoever tells you that there is no conspiracy probably needs to watch this. Sure it's long, and for many who come here, it might not be 'new', it is not really new to me either, but it's worth a watch anyway. I haven't said much about the criminals in office in Canada lately mostly because there is nothing really new to report in this whole Duffy boondoggle, but this article puts an interesting Watergate spin on the whole thing. Not that I think that it will play out like Watergate did because there's too many batshits in the bell tower in these times. Not that the bell tower is of much relevance these days when you've got ghosts like this elsewhere. You might not know him, but he probably knows you.

Of course he's not the only one, because these things are happening in other places too. Coincidence or providence? I don't see coincidence very often anymore. In fact I expect that once something unravels in one country we'll see it unfold in an almost identical manner several other places. I doubt that these programs coming to light are finished yet as I suspect there is still a large portion of Europe still to be exposed.

When will I wake?

I've been thinking lately about this 'grand awakening' that is frequently spoken of throughout underground media circles because I've been curious as to when my own point of contention with this fabricated world actually started. The trouble is, I can't actually define any single point in time.

Certainly 9/11 popped the small bubble that I had going on at the time, which was such:

  • I was working a great job with a promising future at a company that the vast majority of employees would work at until retirement age.
  • I was about to buy my first house
  • I was dating my future ex-wife

None of these things equated to my believing that politicians might ever say an honest word. I already realized that this 'mortgage' I was about to begin, and it's usurious interest was essentially a massive tax on my not being abundantly wealthy. I had a great mistrust for police and other authority figures. I already agreed that Palestine deserved the right to exist, and that Israel needed to stop inciting all the violence. I was already anti-war, anti-consumerism, anti-unrestricted-capitalism, Agnostic (though more recently I think I might have been Gnostic the whole time), and was a conspiracy theorist (who was not fond of the label even then) who did not believe the official stories behind things like JFK and others.

World War ∞

Was there ever any doubt that a new cold war was approaching? I know that maybe it was under the radar of all that hot war that's been going on since the CIA and Mossad did 9/11, because that played out it's intended purpose so perfectly which was to usher in a new era where freedom comes at the cost of having your genitals groped, or having to whip out ID for simply sitting on a park bench.

the trip down memory lane via detours through unfamiliar territory

I heard a good joke last night: Quebec spends $500,000 to examine wasteful spending by feds. I am not sure if that was the joke or the punchline or where the drumroll fits, but it made me cry so hard I laughed. I know it's not nice to cackle wickedly at dumb animals, but I could never take myself seriously as a card carrying member of PETA either. I am almost sure this idea came directly from PETA because it leads me to wonder if there is going to be a mass kill of now 'illegal to sell' animals. Sounds like the logic of PETA (or dumb animals) to me.

Another thing that struck me straight out of the "what could possibly go wrong?" department is why attract a potential doomsday that we don't fully understand for 'further study'? Maybe we'll learn something, or maybe it will kill us all, but there seems to be very large potential risks associated with very small potential gains in this plan. Of course I'm not a rocket surgeon so there is a potential that I have no idea what I am talking about. I'd defer to my gut feeling, but I haven't eaten yet so my gut is somewhat upset right now.

the ingredients of a bureaucracy induced security flaw

But who does represent these people? America?

It appears somebody has launched the holy hand grenade of Antioch. Sorry, I couldn't resist that one, especially after reading how ridiculous certain churches are getting. Don't worry too much about the 5-year-old, because she's been indoctrinated enough to know where she'll be if she protests. That's why we no longer have special classes for special needs children, because we want them to feel like they have a place in society as a whole.

Now that I've covered some of the varied topics that are bugging me, I guess I will focus on something for a while...

Following No Leader Across The Bridge To Nowhere

[writing from the seat of moving busses and metros]

So I'm off to a job interview, let's see if I can hold my cynicism for long enough to earn a paycheck, shall we? It isn't that I want to be back on the treadmill of endless debt slavery, nor that I hold any belief in the monetary system, but everyone else does and I've not had much effect on other's beliefs yet…

I do have an uncanny way of predicting things... A couple of days ago I mentioned that Montreal isn't certain it even has a mayor, and now we don't, again. Not that saying 'I told you so' changes anyone's beliefs, but I can at least take it as a nod of encouragement by whatever invisible force powers the universe. Maybe we will get to where we should be some day. Until then I'll simply do what I can to try and keep us from getting to where we shouldn't be, and be thankful I don't live in 'Detroit rock bottom city'.

Wonders in Aliceland

Will wonders never cease? Canadian mainstream news appears to have picked up the 'Russia does not buy Assad's chemical weapon use' story. I wonder if this means Canada will not be going along with the plan? Not that I think Canada will veto the plan because we don't tend to do that either, at least not in the summer. Nobody would challenge us by starting a ground war in the winter (except for the aforementioned Russia), so vetoing in the winter could happen. I digress. It isn't like Russia has no reason to suspect any new intelligence when that new intelligence could simply be an old plan that's been deleted. It's pretty evident that the U.S. Government routinely fabricates things until they are caught in the lie and have to backpedal, poorly. Maybe the plan is being changed because not enough people bought into it, which simply means that it will be re-introduced as being precisely the same but at a different date.

I am kidding myself... Canada will tag along with big brother like the good little brother it always is.

Inflating egos at deflating prices

Regardless of which aspects if the system you choose to believe in our not, there appears to be one standard rule that can be applied to some part of it. As sure as gravity which could possibly be debated in its calculation, or rate in a given part of to solar system, but not for existing because it's hard to argue against the fact that 'things fall down'. Like gravity, we can also be assured that assholes in a position to do so, will always give themselves a nice healthy salary raise. I'd ask why they think they need 6% while claiming inflation is 2%, but I doubt I'd get a straight answer from them seeing as politics is rather void of honesty.

That is the other undeviated rule is that they lie, cheat, and steal their way into these positions as either a corporate or banker cronie. Once there they make claims like 'there is no housing bubble' [which I've already pointed out and laughed at and even predicted that things will get bad soon], then sound surprised when it's finally revealed as false... I suppose it goes without saying that lies must be carefully maintained to prevent panic right up until the last minute, while bankers, politicians, and wealthy scumbags position themselves to be shielded  from hurting their own assets, yet still be able to claim everybody else's assets once things finally do implode...

Domino

It appears that the next domino in the chain of consequence has begun falling. It could simply be shrugged off as the inevitable and obvious next phase. It couldn't have not happened because it had already been happening since before it actually happened. Many foresaw it as did I, but this would have been a perfect time to have been proven wrong... Wrong had little consequence: an apology, mild embarrassment. Some people simply never can admit to being wrong, but, of course, their consequence would have been greater than mine own. My losing face holds little risk for I am faceless, my losing faith holds little value for I am faithless.

When the cherry coke sponsored version of freedom looks like this nobody is free, or ever was.

Invisible enemies and their imaginary friends

This story is just out there. Qur'an-based defence too challenging even for Muslim lawyers. I am trying to understand why the court is entertaining this idea that the Muslim holy book should be used instead of our usual laws... Oh, wait, I got it... We're feeding the image of crazy muslim terrorists to the public in a way that even the CBC will propagate the fear mongering... That sucks, the CBC is the only Canadian station that looks into the G20 police state tactics in Toronto and other stories often passed over by mainstream media, which is to say that I have some trust in their reporting as opposed to the none allocated to other stations. Not that they're perfect, but they've generally been better than those not owned by the Government which may sound odd, but is seemingly true. Of course just about every Prime Minister of recent decades has cut their funding, so other than news, they don't have much else of any worth...

So what else is new?

Something isn't right... Everybody, and I mean everybody, and let me reiterate that I mean everybody absolutely everywhere seems to be having the same conversation, or variations of the same theme. I won't deny that it's big news that the CIA may have almost told some truth, nor that it's big news that the President of the U.S. does not officially deny everything...  Speculation about shill, traitor, or hero, speculation about real or faked documents, speculation about if this 'draconian system' has caught a terrorist yet, speculation as to how 'draconian' it actually is, speculation as to whether it's technologically feasible or not, and a whole bunch of congressmen who seem to be unaware of the programs they may or may not have approved of or have some odd or ambiguous things to say about it... Even BILDERBERG seems to be discussing it in some way. All angles are being examined on all sides... No problem, maybe this is a healthy debate which is the way an open society should work...

Except...

the "info/dis-info" endless cycle of circular logic divided by zero

I was hoping to change topics today, but, there is still much buzz around Edward Snowdon and the things he's brought to light, and a few things I realize I had not yet said on the topic in yesterdays post. I'll start with something I realize is incomplete, the Metadata from my phone does not include 'cell tower locations' which the government's metadata most likely does. This is not a 'pin-point' accurate reading of your location, but rather a radius on a map that you were likely in at the time. For a demonstration of this, turn off GPS on your smartphone and open the maps application. It will display a circle (or at least it does on my Android phone). Your real location should be somewhere in that circle as that is the approximate coverage of the cell tower you are connected to, and I suggest 'should' because I have personally seen this to be inaccurate at times where I was physically completely outside the circle (I had 1 bar of reception at the time). The size of the circle varies based on how populated an area you are in because the tower can only handle a certain number of active connections, and because tall concrete structures tend to bounce signals in funny ways. This means, the Governments data on your location is more accurate when you are downtown, and extremely inaccurate while you are lost in the woods... So do not buy the excuse that they need this data to find you when you are lost in the woods, a hunting dog would do a better job following your scent from wherever you parked your car and began your misguided nature hike. I am not certain of the exact timeline, but I think we invented dogs before cell towers.

The exciting new game of unbroken telephone

Well, in keeping with my apparent theme, and because technology is my most practiced expertise, it only seems fitting that I call attention to some of the same things I've been calling to attention in the past few days. First I'd like to repeat "what happens there, if successful, shall be the model of what happens here". Of course, here they claim to only have 'metadata' (Which I will explain further down), and not the whole recorded conversation, but then again, there, they made that claim too, until there was proof of that being false.

Colouring outside the lines

As I walk among the sleeping world around me realizing the horror of it all, the sheer evil genius at work which keeps everyone seemingly docile and disinterested and even silently complicit, it is not with a smug sense of superiority but with an aching sorrow. Things that have found the open air of scrutiny should have caused a mutiny but the actors have played their parts so well that today is a day just like all those that went before them.

The actors got all up in arms that the information somehow got out there, not that the information existed and for some reason everybody else seems to be paying along. Bait, and switch, hook line & sinker. Why do we fall for and follow this charade? The cold calculated truth that big brother is real should be a slap in the face to every person who has used the internet or made a phone call in the last decade, yet because it's for our safety and security against the terrorist of the week we should be angry at the one who exposed the truth.

Shoot the messenger. Then forget the message.

Not in my backyard

I'll never understand the argument 'that could never happen here'. It's as though you are willing to debate your own ignorance as some proof of concept scientific experiment that could never go wrong... It's like openly telling someone that you can walk off a cliff and not begin to fall until you look down as if 'coyote & road runner' physics somehow applied to you because you saw it on TV. Pretending something is impossible does not make it impossible regardless of how unlikely or improbable it may sound. It could never happen here, is far more infinite a statement than can be comprehended by the majority of humans and can be torn apart by simple laws of science... "Here" is already farther away than you can fly on a single fully fueled jet by the time you've read this sentence to it's completion, but because you don't feel as though you moved at all, it is very difficult to relate to. Never implies 'here on ever after forever and ever nevermore', "the dodo bird will never repopulate itself via natural processes" Why? Because there are zero dodo birds alive and there would have to be at least 2 within humping distance of each other (and maybe some Barry White music) for nature to do it's thing with that species.

almost as though someone were watching donkey porn with me

It's about time there is some public focus shone upon the dark underbelly of technology. But it's unfortunate, that at the same time, it's simply the tip of the iceberg. You see, just about every bit of code ever written has certain backdoors and open loops whether deliberate or accidental. Some software has been deliberately crippled in order to allow its compliance with U.S. encryption export laws... Think about that one for a second...

Democracy: see Corruption

Strange and backwards. In my last post I made mention of Alex Jones saying things he usually doesn't say, and now somebody is trying to paint Ryan Dawson as a crisis actor... Not very convincingly, mind you, and they didn't even try to Photoshop it... Nope just some dude with a similar haircut. I guess the Hollywood effects people were laid off, because even the fake bin laden photos were at least a little touched up...

When The Turkey Broke Free

There seems to be a lot of these kinds of things going on everywhere lately. The biggest shocker (for me) in this story was in it's source. I didn't see this in my regular sources until after I'd seen it shared by a Facebook friend. Of course today it has disappeared from my Facebook news feed which indicates that either I was dreaming, or cat videos are more important... [sigh]

The individual VS. The collective

-DIrtyKID©

the stripper pole: a perpendicular slope

It's amazing to think that in less than a quarter of a century, one country has managed to move from the spotlight as the enemy of freedom, to one of the few left protecting freedom. Though I suppose it is less amazing when you look at how the previous tenant @ 1 defend-freedom lane, switched careers and became a prison warden who will shoot you simply for looking at him. We really are coming up with some pretty strange ideas to allegedly fix a problem while still leaving the person causing the problem in control of the solution. Maybe the aboriginal peoples are right and cameras really do steal our souls, they will certainly steal our right not get deaded 5 seconds after the camera is switched off.

Blank stare in the minds eye

Move along, nothing to see here. An all too common phrase in these times, before we know it merely looking will be a criminal activity despite human nature's draw which forces most people to look at whatever all the fuss is about. It's often called 'rubber-necking' and the majority of people slow down to stare at a car accident on the highway even if a tow truck, and ambulance and police cars are already attending to the situation. Sure, slowing down likely enhances the safety of 'rescue personnel' but staring does not help anyone. In fact the only activities I can think of which are enhanced by staring is a retina scan or hypnosis.
